All, THANKS FOR BEING ON THE TEAM AND MAKING THE DIFFERENCE! You DO make a difference by making these calls.
PLEASE TAKE 6 MINUTES BY MONDAY NIGHT 4/21 to call the 6 state senators below, per the request of Pamm Larry, our statewide leader. Getting SB1381 voted successfully out of the Senate Judiciary Committee is our next hurdle in getting it passed into law. Pamm would like us to call each member of the committee prior to next Tuesday’s vote, information below. (Judiciary Cmte. relates to consumer protections, per one aide).
And for those of you that haven’t yet heard, Vermont’s state senate has just passed their labeling law. Now it will go to their 2nd legislative house and hopefully the governor (same process as in CA). This is an extremely big deal we can all take encouragement in, our efforts are beginning to pay off. The momentum is on our side, let’s make the most of it and encourage our representatives to pass SB 1381. California should and can do the same as Vermont.
Tuesday, April 22 is another big day for SB 1381 as we go before the Senate Judiciary Committee! We need you to help the members of that committee to feel the support for voting YES on SB 1381. Please be positive, polite and encouraging.
